corn starch. it doesn't work as well as styptic pencil or powder, but it works. The problem is they'll lick it off so you'll have to hold the dog until you get it under control. YOu might have to apply it a few times to get the blood to quit. Foxxy's claws are very dramatic when they get cut too close.

The other thing you could do is take a walk in the snow, if you have snow. the cold will slow the bleeding enough that it clots and the snow keeps it clean.

find an animal acupuncturist. Lots of people find that their dogs respond very well to acupuncture therapy.

hot spot eyes?

Here you go. I don't know what that's all about either, but I am really leery about steroid eye drops too. it looks like it could be styes or inflamed eyelash follicles or an infection in the hair follicles in which case antibioics might help, but a food change might be more in order. You can also get sterile saliene eye rinse from the pet store if you think it will help.

I wonder, does she stick her head out the window of the car a lot?

Coconut oil too! Dogs love the unrefined stuff. Plus, with coconut oil, you can also brush their teeth with it and you can work it into their fur and skin like a lotion. Can't do that with fish oil.

Behavior & Training > Working with an unmotivated dog

He's a coonhound. That's a working dog bred to flush, chase and tree small to medium game. Have they tried tempting him with a flirt pole or using a toy made of real fur and stuffed with wool batting? sometimes dogs really get picky about things being all natural. They don't care about polyester stuffing or fabric, or nylabones, but they go nuts for pizzles and all of the taxidermy in the house.

Dog Health > Panting, hiding and needy. What's up?

Extreme anxiety is a sort of thing that you should probably work with a trainer or an animal behaviorist to assess and correct. Did you know your dogs picture shows penny being very stressed out too? The wide lipped panting, high eyebrows and the spoon shape of his tongue are the big non-verbals in the face for identifying a very stressed out dog.

I've noticed with Foxxy when she gets like that her breath tends to stink like fishy stuff too. It's really bad. They don't just make that scent with the back end. Dogs pant when they are nervous. That's not weird at all. Panting it like doggie flop sweat.

Other than getting with a trainer or a dog psych, and BTW there are actually psychyatrists for animals which I would go get a second opinion with before dosing a dog with anti anxiety. Drugs can do wonders for a dog, but the side effects might make a person pause. Unless your dog is peeing himself, damaging himself or your property every time the kids make thunder upstairs, training, rather than drugs, should be the first line of defense to build your dog's confidence and train yourself to take appropriate action when the dog gets anxious.

Along with that, thundershirts and aromatherapy do wonders for a lot of dogs. YOu can research the right essential oils online.

I think he's trying to say that you might have a dust mite problem in your house. DE is to be sprinkled into the carpet and then vaccuumed up with a HEPA filtered vaccuum. Personally, just put the DE into the cannister and start vaccuuming. Anything that gets sucked up will die in the dust. The only reason to use DE is to kill off tiny nvertibrates like fleas and dust mites and demodex.

What I would do is just on windy days, apply a little eye rinse, such as is made by Nutravet, or whatever brand of it you prefer. Windy days kick up all kinds of particulate and dog eyes are much closer to the ground.

Choosing the Right Dog > You're mad at me because he's not a doodle? Really?

It's absolutely ridiculous. Obama's got 2 PWD's you would think people would recognize the breed before they would go for the mutt. calling a pWD a doodle is like a 2 year old looking at a field full of mules and calling them horses. Yes sweetie. They're four footed equines all right. Just be plesantly surprised he's not calling them cows like mushu in Mulan called Khan.

Small Dogs > My 15 lb Pom at exactly 6 months

It's perfectly normal to have an oversized pom, even from champion lines. It's just a thing that happens sometimes, just like you have rnts, you also have big ones. It even happens with Chihuauas and they're not bred down from anything that people actually know about. YOu have to remember that german spitz, american eskimos, german mettlespitz and pomeranians are actually all the same breed, just different sizes.

I'm going to catch it for saying that, but it's essentially true. poms are just the smallest of that kind of dog. You'll have bigger ones from time to time. It has nothing to do with the quality of the parents.

do you have your first aid kit? you could splint that leg carefully with tongue depressors, cotton, and that self adhesive bandage.
